Will the servers be running the base mod for now, so that practise can continue?

OK, need some help here. Been away for a month and tried to start some testing for Sebring. I cannot find any VEC cars on my system at the moment and not sure from reading the above if that is correct [I do have the following packages listed VEC_Endurance to VEC_Endurance_3].

Also, am I reading it right that we have to do new liveries by the 2nd of March? If so, I doubt that Flatline will be able to as currently struggling to find someone to do the Bathurst livery.

I too will need a bit of clarification. What exactly is needed and where do we find it?
.psd
.json
.region.dds

I have our skin as .psd, but i dont understand the connection to .json (sry to ask)

@Jimmi Allison I dont fully understand this livery update, so:

Firstly, i dont appear to have any updated GTE cars in my "templates" folder, all GTE cars are dated 15/06/2018. how do i get the updated templates?
Secondly, do we just transfer the livery from the old template to the new and thats it?
Thirdly, Do we just need to submit the Car.dds file only?

Information is very limited and whats available is difficult to understand. whats available on the internet is going to take ages to learn and understand fully. Help :)

Some of your questions are answered in the "liveries" thread. But still there are holes i think. Quick help/instructions would be appriciated.

I dont understand it at all but this is what I found.
^that and livery submission thread, please read guys, wont help to ask if you cant use 10 mins to sit down and read the posts i´ve made already.
I have not painted a car for PBR - so dont ask me about how to paint them - i can get them ingame, but again i have not painted so i cant help with that. Use rF2 discord if you need help with painting. Or ask one of the many pro-painters out there.

So, if a team cannot get its livery updated before Sebring, then they cannot race? Where is the thread that advises us that this change was happening (Sorry I have been away and don't recall seeing anything?

Livery submission yesterday was first time I found that information here. Its a really tough deadline to find somebody to change the livery.

You have 2 weeks - yet people questioning a track release the day after the race and IRR after the race - that is plenty of time guys. 2 weeks, almost 14 days to not design but to move the livery to the new PBR template.
I need to either don’t care about the look or care and wipe all skins out and start over, I can’t manage 140 skins and only remove one every now and then to replace it with the new pbr cars

Im trying to crack it too.
Well first of all we need to have regions in the template, which we currently dont have. How to create them?
